(Video) Consulting & Examination

Consulting & Examination

Meet Lolly!

Lolly came to us after her owner noticed she was sneezing and having a ‘gagging’ reflex for a couple of days. We invited Lolly for a health check. After a thorough examination in the consultation room and no obvious signs of cause detected; together with the owner, it was decided that we would admit Lolly for further investigations.

She was admitted to our hospital. A general anaesthetic allowed us to investigate further. Upon examination, her tonsils and upper respiratory tract showed signs of irritation. While examining her nasal passage, a small object was found to be poking out of her left nostril.

After finding the source of Lolly’s problem, we were able to carefully remove an 8cm grass blade from her nostril (see video). Lolly was given some medication to protect her from any infections and inflammation caused by the foreign body and went home the same day. She is now back to her usual happy and healthy self, with no long-term effects.

It is very common to find grass blades and seeds lodged in our pets and they can cause some very serious problems. Please check your pet’s coats, ears, eyes, and paws for any of these pesky items after walks or being outside.
